Publisher's Summary

Jack Reacher takes an aimless stroll past a pawn shop in a small Midwestern town. In the window he sees a West Point class ring from 2005. It's tiny. It's a woman cadet's graduation present to herself. Why would she give it up? Reacher's a West Pointer, too, and he knows what she went through to get it.

Reacher tracks the ring back to its owner, step by step, down a criminal trail leading west. Like Big Foot come out of the forest, he arrives in the deserted wilds of Wyoming. All he wants is to find the woman. If she's OK, he'll walk away. If she's not...he'll stop at nothing.

He's still shaken by the recent horrors of Make Me, and now The Midnight Line sees him set on a raw and elemental quest for simple justice. Best advice: don't get in his way.

    "Reacher's Fine Lines"

    Right from the opening this book promised to deliver a classic, back to basics Reacher experience. Whether it actually does or not will be questioned by some I am sure due to it's slightly more sedate nature.

    It all begins when Reacher detects an injustice, a pawned West Point officer's ring and resolves to check the back story. He's in the middle of nowhere, anonymous towns and places. He quickly sets about finding the truth in his own inimitable way. Child delivers with those short, sharp staccato sentences that despite their design deliver Reacher blunt trauma in bruising fashion. The narration is that classic gravelly drawl which just epitomises the immutable Jack Reacher and his world.

    There are indeed a lot of highlights in the book including some classic Reacher negotiations . . . you know how most of them go! There is classic Reacher analysis and diagnostics, some cracking dialogue and I particularly enjoyed Reacher and a PI discussing entering an abandoned house. In many ways this story more than most highlights the golden heart that beats inside Jack's massive and rough looking frame.

    If there is one thing missing from this story it is that for me the bad guys never quite step up to the mark. The best Reacher stories have all the investigation set against a constant level of threat from whoever he has set himself against. In this one they don't really manage that meaning that by the standards of this series there is less real tension and excitement. As a result some of the book feels a little staid.

    All of that said this is still very enjoyable Reacher and I'm a fanboy so it gets five stars because I love the direct writing style, at once both sharp and quick yet delivering that blunt trauma experience. Although I strongly suspect some Reacher fans might find this one a little sedate in large patches.

    For me though Jack's still the best of his kind - the book version of course!

    "Reacher still does it for me!"

    Love all the Reacher books. His actions have mellowed in line with his age but he's still the guy I'd want if I was ever 'up the creek'!

    "Not as good a story "

    a good listen but plot felt bitty and spun out but still worth a listen for Jack Reacher fans

    "Not the best Reacher but full of suspense."

    The story is somewhat predictable and Reacher is not in enough jeopardy compared with others.

    "I just love the Reacher/Jeff Harding combination"

    I admit that I have listened to the whole series and I love Jeff Harding as a narrator hes like liquid chocolate for the ears. This was another good romp for reacher fans, need I say more.

    "Disappointing"

    Thankfully this isn't the 1st Reacher book I have read and I did not miss out on all the excellent books before this one. I wouldn't have tried a second one if this had been my first.

    Not a book I would recommend to a friend

    "Excellent Reacher Fare"

    The return of Jack Reacher in this book is one of the best. Ok you have to suspend disbelief but so what. A well crafted and thought out tale with the normal splendid narration. Well worth one of your listening credits.
